One of the great things about the magical KitchenAid stand mixer is al the cool gadget-y attachments. The first one that I bought was the meat grinder. Over time I can experiment with different meat blends, but for this first one i just did a piece of sirloin, grinding it twice through the 2 sized die plates.
chop it up small, keep it in the freezer until you’re ready to grind
sometimes the grinding blade would get mucked up with fat, i’d have to stop and clean it out
one with cheddar, one with merkt’s cheddar cheese spread
the texture was fantastic, unlike anything i’d had before
this takes some extra effort, but it’s worth it, not only for taste, but you also don’t have to worry about getting low quality cuts of meat, trimmings, or e.coli. i would reccommend trying this for anyone who wants to get a little more out of their burgers.
